Esteemed Colleagues:

I copied 9front-8013.d9e940a768d1.amd64.iso to a CD and successfully
booted from the CD.  I now see a terminal window with the prompt
"term% " and a window in the upper-left corner called "cirno(4)", I
don't know what that is.  I do not, however, see an installation icon.
How do I install 9force onto my disk so I can boot from it normally?
I have partitioned the disk with GPT and created a small slice tagged
EF00 and a larger slice tagged 3900.  Where is the installation
program?  I do see a /bin/inst directory but I do not see an obvious
installation program in it.  Thank you in advance for your reply.

This is the documentation you're looking for:
http://fqa.9front.org/fqa4.html#4.1

In particular, the install program is invoked with inst/start.
